I will be 67 this month, and in the last couple of years I have lost 38 lbs, I am 3-5 lbs from goal weight, but I am finding that the weight I am at is ok. I have done this very slow, after losing 10 lbs or so I maintain that for awhile 3 or more months. During the last 3 mths of maintaining I have continued to exercise and I have continued to lose inches even though I haven't lost any weight. It takes a long time to change our lifestyles and get healthy, but even us older gals can do it. Good Luck

I am thinking you wouldn't be here if you were truly fine with where you are? The only motivation I can give is that you can achieve your goals if you set them and work toward them - post menopause or not,
I am 61, lost my husband suddenly 2 years ago (so have had much stress), and after a year of eating my way through grief I had 50+ pounds to lose. I restarted a healthy life style early last Fall and am now 50+ pounds lighter, I work out and walk 5 days a week, and I feel better physically than I have in years. And I am happy and proud of myself.
Go for what you truly want - you only have so much time to enjoy this life.....

at 53 I'm doing just fine -- happily married, healthy (touch wood!), raising teens, working, engaged in my hobbies, and about 25 pounds heavier than I want to be. I'm also walking a lot, but still nowhere near fit. In my youth, I could just eat less, exercise more, and drop the pounds (and get fit quick). Now, I do all I used to do and nothing happens. In other words, I need to double the effort for the same outcome. It's hard to feel the desire! Any suggestions?
